Johnson and Allen Mortuary


The funeral home was purchased in 1906 by Clarence Allen and Edgar Harney. They buried people of all races. Harney died in 1911, and A.N. Johnson became a partner. Johnson and Allen is the oldest African-American funeral home in Alabama that has been continuously operated by the same family- the descendants of Clarence Allen
